Blood velocity profiles were measured in the renal branch (diameter 5.9 +/- 1.3 mm) of the aortorenal bifurcation using a 20-MHz 80-channel pulsed Doppler velocimeter during retroperitoneal surgery in 10 patients. The peak Reynolds number was 1145 +/- 140 and the frequency parameter (Wormersley parameter) was 3.0 +/- 0.8. Immediately distal to the ostium of the renal artery, reverse flow, indicating flow separation, was observed near the cranial wall mainly during the first part of the cardiac… CONTINUE READING
